What stirs inside Moria’s Mines? A creature whose fearsome stature is matched only by his temper.

Ready. Set. Collect. Mini Epics are here!

With each new Comic-Con, Weta Workshop’s gang of Rings rabble-rousers grows and grows – and 2018 was no exception. We welcomed four newbies to the fold! In true Mini Epics style, all were digitally sculpted here at the Workshop, with an attention to detail that’s positively mischievous.

Joining our line of Middle-earth MINI EPICS:

  • Saruman the White
  • Samwise
  • Galadriel
  • Balrog The Flame of Udûn

Your eyes aren’t deceiving you: We’ve created our Balrog in an EPIC size, so it can chew the scenery on your shelf just as well as it does in the film.

Our team at Weta Workshop have dreamed about creating a line of vinyl collectibles for a very long time and so it is terrific to be able to reveal our MINI EPICS to you all at San Diego Comic-Con!

MINI EPICS: Balrog size guide

Mini Epics - Samwise, Galadriel, Saruman & Balrog


For more than 27 years, Weta Workshop has created creatures, characters, and entire worlds for the screen – all from our home in Wellington, New Zealand. For a mammoth seven years, we helped to bring The Lord of the Rings to life, crafting thousands of props, costumes, weapons, armour, and miniatures! We’ve worked on some of the world’s coolest movies like Avatar and King Kong, and even picked up five Academy Awards along the way. We’re a busy bunch.


When The Fellowship of the Ring landed in 2001, we weren’t about to let the world of Middle-earth stop at the screen. We set about bringing it to shelves, cabinets, and table tops across the globe! Channelling all that passion and artistry into beautiful statues, these amazing pieces were designed by the same Weta Workshop artists who work on our film projects. And it is still that way today.


15 years on, fans’ insatiable hunger for all things Middle-earth shows no sign of slowing. Which got us here at the Workshop thinking: what else could we do to bring this EPIC world to collectors and film lovers across the globe? The answer: cool and quirky vinyl collectibles, straight from Middle-earth itself. MINI EPICS!

Endlessly collectible. Totally adorable. These pint-sized figures have BIG personalities. And we’re only just getting started…

  2. Pride of Place on my Desk
    The Balrog is amazing, I am so happy to have it brooding over my desk, a fierce and fiery guardian ready to spring into action. The design and paintwork are excellent.

  3. Terror of Flame and Shadow
    The Balrog is perhaps my favorite Mini Epic! It both towers over the rest of the cast and has a satisfying heft, as well as being super stable. Of course, the modeling and paint job are phenomenal and it brings me joy every time I look at it.

    Pictures don\'t do this figure justice. The paint work is amazing. Would definitely recommend.

  5. Awesome figure but very poor support!
    Figure arrived damaged and 3 weeks later I have still not had an update from support! It\'s a shame their artists are let down by their back of shop!

  6. Burn,Balrog,burn!
    Weta got it all right, from the molten skin to the flaming mane! Anyone who loves LOTR should own this.

  7. Mini Ep-gantic
    Larger than I expected, very nicely detailed, looks amazing both in and out of the box and is one of the items I find myself staring at the most in my display case.

  8. Mini epic the balrog
    La figurine en elle-même est très bien mais comme d\'habitude, les couleurs ne sont vraiment pas fidèles aux photos. Le rouge est très foncé, le noir tire sur du violet. C\'est dommage...

  9. Mini awesomeness
    Received it to day and just wow, what an amazing piece. My hats off to the sculptor (Mauro Santini)
    You will not be disappointed with Balrog, he is heavy and solid, the paint and sculpt is 10/10

    I have all of the LOTR mini epics so far minus the the golden Gandalf, I have also got all the other mini epics on preorder, I absolutely love these mini epics.

    Thanks Weta!
